    Can you sex Barred Cochin chicks the same way as Barred Rocks. Darker chicks with round white spot is female. Light colored chicks smudgy spot on head male?

    Quote:For the most part yes. I would say you'd be fairly accurate if the chicks were from a Barred X Barred mating. Barred X Black produces inherently darker chicks so I'd wait a bit on those.

    Quote:We raise and my daughter shows Barred Bantam Cochins. They can be sex'd easily at birth, which is nice [​IMG] Here are a couple pics of youn and older brats taken back in summer of Bailey's crew.
